Quarter: Fall 2019
Grade: A
June 19, 2020

I don't have a particular interest in science, but this class was an easy GE that fills the lab requirement. Lectures were Bruin-casted and the textbook reading was short and pretty straight forward. Drake co-lectured for half the quarter and I really liked her. The labs were long but easy if you remember to cram last weeks material a few minutes before class. Schauble gives 2% extra credit, which bumped my grade up from A- to an A. The final is easier than the midterms, and you can do well on tests simply from paying attention in lectures and/or reviewing the textbook, but I found lectures more helpful than reading. You only really will do bad if you get lazy: all you have to do is spend a little time to understand the concepts

Grade: A-
April 1, 2020

I don't come from a STEM background nor am I smart, but I still managed to get an A- in this class largely because Professor Schauble is very generous with the grading of this class. First of all, an A- in this class is 88%. He also offers a maximum of 2% extra credit by watching and writing a short report on episodes of Planet Earth or Blue Planet, making an A- in this class basically an 86%. I got a C+ and a B- on the midterms and a B on the final and still got an A- in this class because of how the class was set up. The largest grade booster in this class is the lab section. Lab is a grueling two hours, but it was a necessary evil because the quizzes were really easy and made up a large portion of the grade. Showing up and doing the long worksheet made up another large portion of the grade, further diluting the weight of the exams. There is also a lab final, which is essentially a glorified lab quiz which makes up 10% of the grade. If you study for 15 minutes right before the quizzes, you'll get a 10/10. Therefore, if you study the quizzes that are handed back for about an hour, you should get 100+% (there is extra credit) on the lab final. As for the exams, they're actually somewhat difficult: the multiple choice is easy but the short answers actually require some deeper knowledge of the topics. Other reviewers have mentioned that you should read the textbook and you'll be fine. Although I'm sure it worked for some, but for me, it didn't help too much. The main reason why I did so much better on the final than on the midterms was because I stopped looking at the textbook as my predecessors have recommended and instead focused on the lecture material. All in all, it's a pretty decent class and you don't even need to show up to lecture. The content can be really boring at times, but for a relatively easy A, I'd say its worth it.

Solid GE, not much work considering this is a lab class. This class feels like a mix between STEM and humanities so I think almost anyone could succeed in it, although STEM majors probably have a slight advantage. Lots of concepts/facts you have to remember, but most are pretty straightforward. Lab is 40% of the grade and consists of participation and a small quiz each week (quizzes are easy, but a big part of grade so take them serious). Although lab is 2 hours it usually only takes about 1, and you can leave after you finish (they were pretty useless anyway). Professor is a good lecturer and great person, and somehow made learning about different types of mud at least somewhat interesting. Midterm 1 was stupid easy, midterm 2 and the final were harder but doable. Overall just a pretty easy, kinda boring GE.

If you need to take a lab class, I HIGHLY recommend you take it with Professor Schauble. He's very knowledgeable and very passionate about the subject. The class was graded on a curve, but was meant to help everyone rather than hinder. Labs were pretty straight forward, but often did not coincide with the lecture materials that were covered on the tests - but he made us aware of that. You do need to read the book to solidify core concepts, but as long as you put the work in, you'll get a good grade. Tests weren't designed to trick you and questions were straight forward as well. He's a sweet man and also offers many opportunities for extra credit. TAKE THIS CLASS WITH HIM IF YOU CAN!! :)

I'm selling the textbook for this class (Essentials of Oceanography Thirteenth Edition by Alan P. Trujillo and Harold V. Thurman) for $20 (originally $100) so if you want it text me 9194070678 and I'll deliver it to you.

The lab quizzes are 8 questions worth 4 points each and I kept getting 3.5/4 on like every single one which is like an 88 so I think that's what made me get a B+. So make sure you're preparing well for the lab quizzes which are every week. Study for them by looking at the Lab slides from the previous week, not the lecture slides. You can basically view Lab and Lecture as separate. And for the exams, only study the Lecture slides, not the Labs or the Lab slides. I thought the first exam was so easy, then I got a 90, so I was like oh damn, but my TA graded my free response so hard for no reason. I kind of had a shitty TA. He wasn't very nice (Yufan). He's one of those teachers who gets annoyed when you ask questions saying you should've read the textbook or whatever. It's an easy class that you can get through I just should have studied more. There's no homework except the lab readings and studying for the Lab Quizzes and exams. There were two exams and a final (cumulative). I thought the final was pretty easy. It was 53 multiple choice and 7 free response that were just like drawing wind patterns on a picture of the Earth. I finished it in 50 minutes. I think you definitely need the textbook for this class. There were three chapters that you were on your own for for the final (he didn't lecture on them, you just had to read the textbook, but they were on the final).

This class is terrible. The lectures are boring and the labs are extremely unhelpful. Multiple times I have reached out to Schauble and my TA to clarify topics or to clear up an absence and their quickest reply was 4 days. The exams are manageable, but tough and he only gives like 5-10 practice questions to prepare yourself with

This class was super cool. I have a total of 3 brain cells, but all this class takes is a bit of reading of the textbook. He bruin casts all the lectures, so it's usually empty. I went to lecture because I can't get myself to stay on top of any work, but I found this class engaging. Professor Drake co-taught the class and she's cool.
Lab is the absolute easiest thing ever. You have a quick quiz at the start based off the last lab, so glance over the slides for like 15 minutes and you'll ace all the quizzes. Then you just get a cool activity packet that you can collaborate on, and you just get participation credit. TA can let you out once you finish, so lab is often times about an hour. It's fun and I looked forward to it.
The midterms and finals were really easy. Mostly multiple choice, some free response. It's all straight forward and not necessarily conceptual. If memorization is your thing, this will be quite easy.
This is an easy GE if you know how to skim a bit and pay attention to lecture.
